It was time for a little "cooking" in PreK so I asked the Monday class to help me make a batch of playdoh. I included the recipe here so you can see how simple it is to whip up some of your own at home. Everyone had a chance to add ingredients like oil, flour, salt, or water. After all ingredients were int he pan I asked everyone to make some space so they could all be safe. Taking about burns and scars was a big part of cooking and the class is aware of the dangers of hot stoves and pans. As I stirred there were thoughtful observations from everyone about how the water and dry ingredients mixed. They thought it looked like snow and a blue river. The end result was squishy, soft dough that they made into cupcakes, cookies, and cakes for me. What a delicious day!
Trains and tracks were a favorite activity this week too. Chugga-chugga-choo-choo!
